The Cannon Dual Fuzz

Referred to by Gary Clark Jr. as one of his “go-to” pedals in 2024, the Cannon dual fuzz is a 2-in-1 mashup of a pair of classic fuzz circuits: the Tycobrahe Octavia and the AstroTone Fuzz / Sam Ash Fuzzbox (but we dropped the nearly useless tone control from the AstroTone). The circuits can be run separately or stacked together for a really gnarly fuzz with delightful octave up overtones. The Octavia side also features an octave-defeat switch.

The Cannon uses the same innovative bypass switching setup as our Third Rail overdrive, which allows for On/On, Flip Flop, and Momentary bypassing modes.

This pedal was conceived by, created for, and named after Chicago-area bluesman Toronzo Cannon.

As with all Function f(x) pedals, the Cannon dual fuzz sports a soft-touch, relay-based true bypass switching system.


  • Two fully independent classic fuzz circuits in one box
  • Volume and Fuzz controls for both circuits
  • Octave “lift” switch (removes the octave up overtones)
  • Soft touch (true) bypass with a choice of three bypass modes
  • Top mounted jacks
  • Laser-etched artwork
  • 9v DC operation (industry standard)
  • 35mA current draw (20mA when bypassed)
  • Dimensions: 4.7″ x 3.7″ x 1.4″
